This vintage dress dates from 1937 to 1940, a rare survivor of a bygone age, made from rayon taffeta in brown, turquoise, orange and yellow stripe. It also has a matching Jacket with puffed sleeves.
Now while this garment has some small defects such as a pin hole in the jacket where a brooch has been and some minor stains on the dress, it still has its place in the 21st century.
A 1940's celebration day, photo shoot, walk on in a film, play or draft a pattern from the design yourself.
The dress is Bust 34" and Waist 24", unlabelled and sold as is.
